4950316 tn?1394188185 If you have been taking the Incivek for 5 days and you have a rash, your rash may very well be from the Incivek. Of course it could be from the Ribavirain, but it could be from the Incivek. Regardless, get on top of it immediately. It can and will snowball out of control if you do not get it under control right away. You do not state how bad the rash is or if you are using anything on the rash.
Avatar m tn hi, i am 15 years old, and i get rashes on my skin if scratched. It usually comes as lines and i can write on my skin using my fingernails. also my body becomes itchy.The dermatologist says that it will be there for a maximum of 2 years and go away. I have been taken pills to decrease the itchiness, which was given by the dermatologist. however these rashes will occur still.
Avatar m tn I have been getting skin rashes from my early childhood. These Rashes tend to come mostly during the Summer months of the year. They usually seem like a mosquito bite. They first occurs behind the ear, then around the neck, head scalp and spread to the back. Finally i get them even in my face. They are very itchy . They usually seem to have a cycle like 24 hours. They start by afternoon and get intense by evening and disappear while i sleep. The body gets heated up so much during that time.
Avatar n tn Stress often causes several body changes. Skin can be one of them. 'Satellite' type (round) patches are often a sign of either a fungal infection or eczema (could be a number of other things as well)(itching could indicate eczema). Depending on the cause, (fungal, ecz, bact.) there are a number of treatments. For one, try showering with cooler water, keeping the areas clean (try cleaning with hibiclens).
Avatar f tn For two years I have suffered from a skin rash which mimics scabies. I have had various tests including biopsies. The rash now covers my entire body and itches a lot. For many years Ihave been on thyroid medication for nodules on my thyroid. Could the rash be related to my thyroid? This discussion is related to <a href=''>Skin rashes</a>.
Avatar f tn For about five years now I have suffered from abdominal pain, bloating, spasms, fatigue and skin rashes. The gastrointestinologist diagnosed me with IBS. I have tried high fiber diets, herbs, acupuncture all of which offered some relief but never got rid of the symptoms. I don't have the energy I used to and lifting and stretching seem to make the pain and bloating worse.
Avatar f tn Dermatographism can be caused by stress, tight or abrasive clothing, watches, glasses, energetic kissing, heat, cold, or anything that causes stress to the skin. It can be treated by antihistamines or cromoglicate and sometimes steroids, as they prevent the histamine from causing the reaction. As the underlying cause of dermographism is not known, it can last for many years without relief. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Docs said, skin rashes may go by age 15 - 16. She still has skin rashes, which sometimes go and sometimes come.
Avatar m tn My wife suffers from a severe condition since she was a little child. Skin rashes that come and go, on her arm, legs, face, all over her body. They are red, ich a lot and and the skin peels off like it was dust. We have spent all the money possible (and impossible) to figure this out. We've been to all sorts of doctors, who have suggested many different causes such as food allergies (lactose, gluten, fruits and the list goes on...), psychological problems, stress, fungus...
Avatar f tn I really would just like to know what is causing these rashes so I can avoid it and stop the rashes from coming back.
Avatar f tn But i can't remember being in a hot tub or pool or anything like that I personally have this on my arm for about a year an a half i do have a lot of stress i used to be on zoloft and stopped taking zoloft because i thought the rash started from that but apparently i'm off of zoloft for about a year and the rash is still there.. i do have a history and minor cases of psoriasis but my doctor said it's not that!
1038715 tn?1274311044 God bless all. A stress rash or hives on the skin can develop when a person is under stress. Whether stress or anxiety has this effect on an individual depends on many factors and no two people will react the same. Stress and especially constant daily stress affects the health of individuals in many ways. Often health problems are difficult to link directly to stress, but without a doubt, it does play a role in poor health. Heart problems, high blood pressure, mental disorders, etc.
Avatar f tn Hi. I'm a female here. I recently found out that I have rashes on my upper body. From my neck to down to below of my breasts. The rashes looks like have puss inside, but I cant squeeze out. Had fell sick recently during the past week, with running nose for almost a week. Had sexual intercourse for the first time about two months ago, but broke off with the relationship already. :( I would like to know what are the causes of this rash? Is it due to HIV? And do HIV cause rash on skin?
Avatar n tn she was never able to get it to go away and we both use cortizone/cortisone. These only work to keep it from becoming agitated, if we don't use these everyday it becomes very itchy and red. If at all possible i would like to find a solution that will kill the rash so that we don't have to apply cortisone every day, regular lotion doesn't help at all so i believe its probably some kind of fungus.

Avatar n tn Stress can keep the best medicines from working. Try this Quiz from my Skin Deep site ( Quick Quiz Rather than dividing illness into "emotional" or "psychosomatic" and "physical, " I think of emotions as a factor in all skin problems. Emotional difficulties may be the sole cause of few symptoms but they play a role, major or minor, in the flare-ups of many, perhaps most.
Avatar m tn After that the itching went away and the skin was slightly dry and I could peel off the dead skin. But I also had some redish marks on my toes and outside of my foot. My second unprotected exposure lead me to massive stress/anxiety filled research on the internet. During this time I developed full body rash that looked like a sunburn.
Avatar n tn I think if I were to lose weight, the skin would not rub on itself so much. The rashes on my neck area could be stress rashes. Women have a tendency to get them in that area (so I have read). Maybe if we could stop stressing over the rest of the rashes, these would go away!!!!!!!) Also, keeping the affected areas as dry as possible to avoid irritation... If you work out, make sure you don't let sweaty clothes stay on any longer than necessary.
701252 tn?1234379289 Hi, I can't answer this with any knowledge, but if I remember right Quix has said that rashes aren't due to MS. The itching without a visible cause is from MS. Maybe she will pop on here and explain it for you. Get results tomorrow, huh? Great, please let us know what he says!!! Take care and have a good and productive appt tomorrow!!
Avatar n tn constant anxiety and extremely high stress from the month of dec to sept 2006 followed. I got tested thru MEIA for hiv 1 and 2 in the meanwhile. was negative after 4,6 and 8 months. But then the rashes multiplied in the meanwhile. I used to feel itchy in the genital areas, and circular patches( around 4-5 ) developed on testicles, which used to go for a duration of 10-12 days on applying a cream called quadriderm, but reappear again. and they r still there. The ITCHING DOESNT SEEM TO END.
Avatar m tn Papulnecrotic tuberculids need to be ruled out,that is why mantoux test has been ordered.Do wait for the result,Hiv rashes are typical and you have no associated symptoms like fever,lymphadenopathy.I would be happy to receive a diagnosis of PNT, while PLEVA by it self is a benigin condition.
1135554 tn?1260547846 As for not 100%, sore stomach and little weird since the incident you might want discuss with your doctor to rule out some infection, either from sex or some other infection from any place. It's not from acupuncture spots since nowadays professionals use disposable needles. Couple of weeks is too much time unless you have some underlying problem or maybe it's just stress. I believe it's not something too serious to worry about. It's best to discuss with your GP.
Avatar n tn When there is no place for the sweat to come out, we get the rashes i.e., boils (the skin looks like I have chicken pox). Hope I have got this right. Now in my situation. I am getting these whenever I feel like sweating or when the muscles are heated (say while lifting something). I get these boils only on my chest, abdomen and ventral section of my hand. No where else!
